DEFINITION OF HIEROPHANT
1 : A priest in ancient Greece; specifically; the chief priest of the Eleusinian mysteries
2 : a. Expositor
When I was learning about Tarot, many Moons ago, 🌛 there were few books, no internet (in the dark ages) and no teachers. Now we have a wealth, an avalanche of resources and opportunities to learn from; to help us understand, grow, create and explore this fascinating system.
But where to start? I would like to recommend some places for you because I love sharing terrific material. Also, please take a look at my Resources page where I list my favorite books, decks, sites and blogs. These are my personal favorites and the list will grow. I'm sure you will find many more that will resonate with you once you start this journey.
So let the Hierophant be your mentor and advocate, and let him share these amazing guides with you.
Tarot books, card meanings, free readings, and an excellent place to find examples and reviews of many Tarot decks.
